WIJNGAARD AFFINE CHEVRE (GOAT GOUDA)
250g - Goat, Pasteurised
This wonderfully creamy goats’ milk Gouda is white and delicate.
At four months old it still has a smooth, supple texture, but has developed a well-rounded, fuller flavour.
STÄRNÄCHÄS EXTRA MATURE
250g - Cow, Raw Milk
Produced at the foot of the Säntis mountain near Appenzell, Stärnächäs has a flavour that sits somewhere between a Gruyère and an Appenzeller. The texture is slightly supple and smooth, with only the occasional crystal and a few small holes found within the paste. The sweetness is not as intense as that of an aged Gruyère, as the cheese is aged for only eight months. However, there is a quality about the flavour combined with the texture that is eminently ‘more-ish’: you just can’t stop going back for just one more nibble
250g - Sheep, Raw Milk
Award-winning Berkswell cheese takes at least four months to mature, and is sweet and nutty, with a hint of caramel and a definite tang on the finish.
Similar in style to a Pecorino, Berkswell is a magnificent-looking cheese. (Its distinctive ridges and unusual markings on the rind are the result of draining the curd in normal domestic kitchen colanders!)
Throughout our history, we have sought, cared for and loved hand-made cheese. Search from over 600 delicatessens, farm shops and so on throughout the UK, and in over 30 countries (from Austria to Australia).
Because our products are perishable, we take great care in delivering your order. We will hand pack and deliver the next day, we must have an alternative delivery instruction for any private address, such as "leave in porch/on step/with a neighbour". This is particularly important if you are sending a surprise gift.

The Fine Cheese Co. is a maturer, wholesaler, retailer and exporter of artisan British cheeses. We are based in historic Bath, founded by the Romans and famous for its beautiful Georgian architecture - alongside Venice the only World Heritage city in Europe.
We have been cheese specialists for twenty years, and from the start we have nurtured and supported the cream of British cheese-makers. We stock over a hundred hand-made British cheeses: from rediscovered gems such as Devon Oke, a hard but creamy cows’ milk cheese made to the original seventeenth century recipe, to Lord of the Hundreds, an unpasteurised mature sheep’s milk cheese made in the style of an Italian Pecorino.Read more about us >
